If you were asleep at 12:44 AM PST Sunday morning, we've got some bad news: you will NEVER work with Kanye West. Yeezy tweeted this morning:

It makes sense: you don't become a visionary best-selling recording artist, fashion designer, honorary Kardashian, and future president by snoozing the night away. Genius doesn't sleep, people.

Naturally, the good people of Twitter had plenty of responses to Kanye's stringent standards for his collaborators.

If you're still hoping to work with Ye someday, you'll probably want to leave your ringer on tonight.
